It is with very great sadness that we have heard of the death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

It was in Devon as a young naval officer, training at Britannia Royal Naval College, that Prince Philip met and later married Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Not surprisingly therefore the County has been important to them both throughout their lives and they have visited us here many times.

We give thanks for a wonderful life. May he rest in peace.

Visits by the

HM Lord Lieutenant of Devon

The Lord-Lieutenant is very keen to get out and about in the County and to meet people who are doing great things and seeing how the county is thriving in business and third sector organisations.

If appropriate, when there is something wonderful to celebrate or somebody special to thank the Lord-Lieutenant or one of his Deputy Lieutenants could be invited to attend to represent Her Majesty The Queen.

If you give us a call we can discuss your event and talk about the protocols which apply.
